Despite sitting top of the Premier League table, Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney believes the team can still do better, according to Sky
United’s 3-1 victory over Queens Park Rangers on Saturday, coupled with the 0-0 draw between Chelsea and Manchester City a day later, meant that the Red Devils ended the weekend a point clear of City and five better off than Chelsea, with the season’s surprise package West Bromwich Albion in third place, four adrift of United.
Rooney is however concerned that United’s defence has been leaky, and a possible reason for why City are still unbeaten this term while United have lost three times. United have conceded 18 goals to City’s 10 but, crucially, whereas City have drawn five games, United have not drawn any.
The England striker wants to see clean sheets in United’s next matches, adding that while the team retains faith they can outscore any opposition, there will be times when they have to grind out results in they are to regain the title from the Etihad Stadium.
Rooney said: “Clean sheets are the foundation we hope for, we know we have players who can score goals and win us games. If we can get a clean sheet, then I’m sure we can get them at the other end and win games. So we need to make sure we are full focused now and try to kick on, try to go on a good run.
